Tempting the Creek

Poetry

Photo by Rhendi Rukmana on Unsplash

Every heavy drop of rain
is slow poison tempting the creek
to fill and fill till it's overflowing
the stagnant backwater a memory

Slow poison gaining quicker momentum
as the creek rocks grow slick with rain
the stagnant water is yesterday's problem
today's problem is floodwater growing
